Black Umfolosi

Black Umfolosi is an award Winning Acapella singing and traditional dance group that was formed in 1982 by students who wanted to develop themselves and contribute to their communities, in a positive way.

The main reason for this initiative was to preserve and revive the Imbube Culture which was at the time invaded by Break Dance and Western Culture, in which it was now facing eliminationfrom African Dance Culture.

Black Umfolosi is the best traveled Group in Zimbabwe and Southern Africa, hence having toured extensively nationwide and internationally;Europe,USA,Canada, Australia and Asia.

They have represented Zimbabwe at International events such as Universal Expo 1992 in Spain, Universal Expo in Portugal 1998 and the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada among many more.Black Umfolosi soon found the need in the visited communities for people to see and learn about Zimbabwean Traditions. The group made it their obligation to demonstrate and teach others around the world (including other African countries) about the Zimbabwean and most Southern African traditional dances and music.

To achieve this; Black Umfolosi music group had to become Black Umfolosi Performing Arts Project.

This expansion involved:

•Lifting up high the Zimbabwean flag as cultural ambassadors to the International Arena since 1987 till today.

•Mentoring newly formed groups in the performing arts fraternity.

•Promoting other local artists who do not have the funds and facilities topromote themselves

•Allowing the use of equipment and facilities by other performing art groups.

•Hosting foreign artists and visitors.

•Providing training in singing, dancing, technical management in performance art projects and various discipline capabilities.
